Kitchen decor

 These are my old "EAT" phrase letters that used to be in our apartment. Now with our new place they just don't fit, so its time for new color schemes. This is an easy project and I like the look of letters and phrases. My husband, kinda thinks its weird, but oh well.

Step One: Choose your word or phrase and buy some letters. I bought mine at Micheal's and also I bought some cheap scrap-booking paper that matched my new yellow kitchen.

Step two: Trace the letters on the back on the paper, make sure that you trace it the right way so when your turn the paper over the letter won't be upside down (uhhhh, I hope that makes sense).

Step 3: Paint the sides of the letters and some of the top, you don't have to paint the whole letter since you will put the paper down on the top. Let it dry (it takes some time). 

Step 4: While your paint is drying, cut out your letters! and then wait some more.

Step 5: Once the paint is dry now it is time for mod podging. Paint the top of the letters with mod podge and then place the paper letters on the top. Use some more mod podge and paint the top of the letters again with the scrapbooking paper on. Now more waiting! 

Step 6: Once it is dry, choose the spot and hang up your phrase!


  1. Cute! I'm glad you included instructions because I've been wanting to do something like this for a long time but didn't know how.

  2. Oh my goodness, I'm so jealous of your pink appliances. Your kitchen is adorable!
